Acridini[1] is a tribe of insects in the subfamily Acridinae, of the insect family Acrididae and are sometimes called "silent slant-faced grasshoppers" . It was firstly described as Truxalis Conicus in 1781[2]


Insects of this tribe are usually slender and like other members of the subfamily Acridinae lack stridulatory pegs and are silent.[3]
